Whether you’re an innovator or simply interested in education, technology or the port, a guided tour of RDM Rotterdam is an experience that shouldn’t be missed.
This impressive location – where workers once built massive steamers like Holland-America Line’s SS Rotterdam and submarines launched from the slipway – has been transformed into the port’s premier innovation hotspot.
Here, educational institutions, researchers and private-sector players work together on innovations that contribute to a ‘smarter’ port. It’s definitely something to be seen and experienced!

For nearly a thousand years, the Dutch have been clever in dealing with the water that surrounds them. The sustainable blend of nature and technology used to keep Kinderdijk dry is so uniquely valuable that the area and its windmills were granted UNESCO World Heritage status. From now on, the whole world can come by to experience what we have achieved here!
Visitors come from all across the world to experience this unique piece of history for themselves. Since Kinderdijk is a monument to the history of humankind, we were officially included as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Now, we stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the most famous and most amazing places on earth. The story of Kinderdijk is now a genuine part of world history, kept safe for future generations to visit and experience.
